A Gentleman’s Stipulation (The Scarlet Salon Book 4) by Jean Wilde – Review by Michelle Austin

A Gentleman's Stipulation (The Scarlet Salon, #4)A Gentleman’s Stipulation by Jean Wilde
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Gentleman’s Stipulation (The Scarlet Salon, #4) by Jean Wilde was a good 4 star read.
I was pulled in right from the beginning. This is Lady Victoria and Blake’s story.

Victoria is 24 and really wants a husband and family, at her age she is considered a spinster. Then she meets Blake at a party, he’s the son of a tycoon and let’s just say there wasn’t any love lost between them. This is a good love and hate story but you could feel the attraction between them. While at another party something happens that unexpectedly brings them together and they have to marry.

Can these two put their hate aside and actually find love? Will they make it to the altar?

Overall I enjoyed this book. I really liked Victoria, she is a strong character who isn’t afraid to say what’s on her mind. Blake has been hurt in the past and is very cautious. The bantering between these two was great. I look forward to reading more from this author and series. 1-click and get started today.

Romance in Rehoboth Boxed Set (Books 1-3)Romance in Rehoboth Boxed Set by K.L. Montgomery
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Romance in Rehoboth Boxed Set (Romance in Rehoboth #1-3) by K.L. Montgomery was a great 5 star read. This is a great opportunity to have the first three books of this great series all at one time. Once you start you will be pulled right in.

Book 1 Music Man:
This is Claire and Jack’s story and I loved it.
Jack has always had the dream to make it big in the music industry. Life had other ideas for him and he ended up a music teacher. When he meets Claire there is an instant connection, they are great together. After Claire encourages Jack to enter a contest, things take a great turn for him and he gets another chance at his dream.

Can Jack have it all, family, music career and Claire?

Overall I really enjoyed this story. Claire loves Jack and will support him in anything he wants to do. Jack also loves Claire and is great with his daughter. There is so much going on in this read I don’t want to give anything away. The secondary characters were great. I also had some LOL moments as well.

Book 2 The Flip:
What do you do when the person you hate becomes a co-owner of the same house as you? Andrew and Sonnet have a not so great past from high school, when they find themselves in an odd predicament they choose to fix up the home and sell it. Sounds easy right? Not so much.

These two have such a connection that they try to deny in the beginning, eventually they decide to give a little summer romance a try. Will it stay just a summer thing?

I was pulled right in and couldn’t stop until I was done. I loved all of the characters, they added a great element to the story. Both Andrew and Sonnet grew on me, I loved her sassiness. There was something enlightening about reading this book, I had so many LOL moments. If you’re looking for a good fun read, this is your book.

Book 3 Plot Twist:
Lindy is a teacher who is taking care of her parents and working on her dream.
When Lindy’s friends convince her to join the theater, this is where she meets Meric.

Meric is an accountant and is in the middle of a divorce. When he meets Lindy at the theater he is drawn in by her. He wasn’t planning on any type of relationship but something about her is different.

These two have some issues that have them holding back. Can they get past these feelings and have something together? They form a great friendship, it’s great watching them grow and develop their relationship into something more.

Will they get a HEA?

I really liked Lindy’s sassiness and how she connected with Meric. These two pulled me right in with their story. The secondary characters added a great element to the story. The only thing that gets to me is that Lindy is plus-size and I at times have a hard time with what is considered plus-size, I would have been just as happy not knowing her size and only knowing her as the great loveable character she is. If you are looking for a great romance with some LOL moments this would be a great book for you. Thank you K.L. Montgomery for another page turner.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Finder of the Lucky Devil (Lucky Devil #1) by Megan Mackie was an interesting 5 star read.
This is a book that is out of the realm of what I typically read but I really enjoyed it.

We start with an interesting prologue and then we jump ahead six years later to Rune owning a bar in Chicago, The Lucky Devil’s. Rune inherited the bar from her aunt. Rune has a secret that she has to keep, but owning the bar is making it difficult for her to keep a low profile.

When Saint comes into the bar wanting to hire Rune to use her special skills to find someone, there’s a little problem. The person he needs to find is actually right in front of him but doesn’t know it. Needing the money for the mortgage, will Rune take the Job?

Overall I really enjoyed this read, it is a very interesting world that pulls you right in. We meet several different characters, trolls, vampires, fairies and so much more. We get action and some twists that add a great element to the story. I wasn’t sure about Saint at first but he quickly grew on me, I loved Rune from the beginning.

Devil’s Spawn (Satan’s Devils MC Colorado Chapter #6) by Manda Mellett – Review by Michelle Austin

Devil's Spawn (Satan's Devils MC Colorado Chapter #6)Devil’s Spawn by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Devil’s Spawn (Satan’s Devils MC Colorado Chapter #6) by Manda Mellett was a great 5 star read. I have to say it did take me just a bit in the beginning to get pulled in as we were getting introduced to all of the characters because you basically have two stores going on at once. Keeping them straight threw me off a little until I got to know them better.

My heart broke for Vannah and her son. Liz was her husband who suffered a traumatic brain injury in the military and pretty much lost all memory of his family. Giving him the space he needed Vannah had stepped back for 10 years but yet kept tabs on him. Now she is struggling with her son and realizes he needs his father. Can the club help Vannah and her son reconnect with Liz or is he lost forever?

Mace and Shayla also had a great story. Shayla came into the shop wanting a tattoo removed but there was something about the tattoo that Mace needed to check into. Who is she and what is she running from?

OVerall this was a great read. Mace was great trying to help Vannah and her son and his story was great as well with Shayla. Manda has once again done a great job of pulling you right in with her writing. Of course I wanted to pound some sense into Liz a couple of times but overall the characters were great.
